2014 NFL Draft Results: Potential Brandin Cooks Contract Details

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

We haven't even started the second round of the 2014 NFL Draft but we've already got a good idea of what Brandin Cooks' first NFL contract will probably look like when he officially signs with the Saints this summer.

I asked salary cap expert Joel Corry from the National Football Post to tell me what he expects from the first round draft pick's contract.

Corry thinks Cooks should cash in for about $8.5 million over four years and will get more than half of that up front. Cooks should only count about $1.5 million against this year's salary cap. According to the NFLPA the Saints are currently $3,450,141 under the cap so they've got room to spare.
